Advanced Light Therapy

Our mission is to improve health, decrease healing time, and give relief by stimulating the body’s natural recovery mechanisms.

EquineLight™ is a company located in California’s Bay Area dedicated to providing non-invasive advanced light therapy to equines and other large animals.

Our affiliates include PetLight, for small animals, and LightMD, Inc., for humans. The EquineLight™ system is the equine version of LightMD’s patented phototherapy (or light therapy) system. Using both red and infrared light, our therapy is non-invasive and naturally stimulates healing through the use of hundreds of superluminous diodes (SLDs). These SLDs are then mounted in aseptic polymetric pads that provide high flexibility to ensure comfort to your equine.

The difference in power versus other commercial light therapy systems is comparable to a bright 100W lightbulb against a dim 20W reading light. Research shows that living cells in the body are able to absorb light and convert them into energy. When this happens, it triggers an increase of cellular activity and beneficially drives metabolism.

EquineLight therapy works by regenerating damaged cells using advanced technology to deliver the maximum amount of visible red and infrared light stimulation to a specific area. The photons in SLD light therapy are absorbed through the skin and stimulate:

  • Release of ATP energy
  • Formation on new capillaries to increase circulation and carry away cellular waste
  • Collagen synthesis
  • Release of endorphins and serotonin
  • RNA and DNA synthesis to replace or heal damaged cells

As a result of EquineLight therapy, our equine clients experience:

  • Reduced Inflammation
  • Accelerated Cell Rejuvenation
  • Reduced Pain
  • Increased Mobility and Flexibility
  • Rapid Healing & Recovery

EquineLight therapy has been used successfully in conjunction with both traditional and non-traditional healing practices including veterinarians, equine chiropractors, and acupuncturists.

Case Studies

Stories of health maintenance, injury recovery, and performance improvement.

Dressage Horse

Sumi, a 12 year old Westfalen dressage competitor, developed acute laminitis and was on the verge of foundering in August 2015. Using EquineLight’s SLD red light and infrared wavelengths, Sumi was treated every one to two days for 30-40 minutes. From the first treatment she responded positively with lip licking and neck stretching. After six sessions, her vet cleared her to being training. 

Shortly after Aryton, a nine year old Oldenburg gelding, arrived at his new barn, he showed signs of lameness. For weeks later, this Developing Young Horse began rearing and bucking under saddle. Veterinary diagnosis shows a level 4 high suspensory tear on his right hind and three smaller suspensory tears (four total). On his vet’s recommendation he received five weeks of EquineLight therapy followed by a stem cell treatment. The subsequent RMI and ultrasound showed that the largest tear had been reduced to a level 1. Aryton is back in training and continues weekly EquineLight treatments for maintenance.

Forjatt developed EIPH (exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage). Drug laws in UAE prevented his trainer from using traditional US methods to control the condition. After six treatments over a one week period, Forjatt was cleared to race and won the Group 3 Jebel Ali Mile Stakes. Forjatt remains free of EIPH.

What do our clients have to say?

We love working with our clients and hearing how much EquineLight has helped them.

I was surprised how fast it reduced the inflammation of the high suspensory. You could see he (the horse) was feeling better and better pretty quickly.

Dressage Trainer & Chiropractor
In some of the horses that you've done light therapy on their backs and neck, [I've noticed] more willingness to work, to be supple right off the bat. [...] And the horses that you've done light therapy on their poll, I swear that they just have a better working attitude.
Laura Mauck
Ridge Stables, Woodside
It has given me another non-invasive tool to offer my clients. My chiropractic care has become stronger and more effective since I started treating with SLD light therapy.
